If a physical release is, indeed, contingent upon the game performing well... I don't have very high hopes. Niche fighting games are a tough sell to the casual gamer.

 

I really hope that it does make its way to discs, though. Fighting games are my favorite genre and I want to own as many of them as I can.

wish they made a publishing deal with Sony

I honestly don't know how well niche physical fighting game releases do. They seem to clearance out pretty low and pretty quickly.

I just want to see a PC version of Fighting EX layer. While I do overall prefer PC due to the vast options and overall better versions of most games, there are two genres in particular that I like to see on PC: Shmups and fighting games.

 

I never want to have to hook up an old console, deal with nonsense updates, archaic interfaces, dead online from everyone being on the next gen platform, old controllers, etc, when I get an itch to play a fighter or a shmup for 30 minutes. For those two genres being able to play all of my favorites across any generation, with any controller, and with extreme convenience is very important to me. I think it's mainly the pick up and play aspect that makes me single those two out.

The last time I played a good Star Trek game was over 20 years ago.

Grabbed Tokyo Xanadu eX+ since it's on sale. 

Well there was YS VIII but decided to get that on Switch.

I think you'll like Tokyo Xanadu eX+. Well once you get through to the fact that it's like six hours of actual gameplay and 60 hours interactive visual novel. 

As far as Ys VIII, I'm just going to wait for the PC version. Just so I can get through some other games like Xenoblade 2's postgame stuff, Persona 5, Monster Hunter World, Radiant Historia 3DS, and did I mention Xenoblade 2? 

 

On that note, the Switch version may release before the PC one will!

 

I enjoyed playing Pocket Pool with Deanna Troi when I was 13.   She was my first true love.  But then Xena came on at 11:00 and they would occasionally have to battle for my affections. 

 

Oh if only she could have read all our young brain waves! Or....maybe not.  Hehehe.

FML, I missed the limited edition USB flash drive. Oh well. But....wow....it's even going to be in Hi-Res. O_O. YES!

Sounds like multiplayer will be tacked on again as more of an afterthought rather than it being fully integrated. You'd think that them borrowing from Minecraft would lead to fully integrated multiplayer, but instead the Japanese will be themselves when it comes to half assed multiplayer. Hopefully I'm proven wrong, but their track record is absolute shit when it comes to good multiplayer design. /rant

 

I guess I'll likely be waiting for a good discount before even considering this game.

Just in case anyone is looking for the Monster Hunter Dualshock 4, Play-asia has 1 left in stock. They used to have two, then I bought one, and now they one left. Pricey but boy is it a beautiful thing.

Give impressions if you play it. I didn't order it myself since the game play looked really simple and it seemed like more of a multiplayer game, but I'd like impressions.

 

Think it's just going to be Super Robot Wars X and the Full Metal Panic game for Asian English releases for me this year so far. I love me some turn based games. Bullet Girls Phantasia looks super iffy, but I may get it on sale sometime.

Weekly free PSN junk:

 

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life

PS4

- -Prologue- Demo (Temporarily removed from the store)

 

Critics Choice Sale

 

 

Since there has been mention about JP PSN themes and what not, I'll go ahead and list the last years free themes below as well. They of course require you to be logged into your Japanese PSN account for the link to direct you to the proper page.

 

(Direct link to JP PSN 'Free' Themes Page)

 

Spoiler

 

Not much this week, but a fair amount from the JP PSN store since I haven't really linked anything from it in over a year more or less. There are two themes I linked that are PS+ only which probably interest people in this thread.

 

EDIT: Added a few more JP PSN Themes.

For anyone who was able to grab the Yakuza 6 demo. Apparently, there's a glitch in the US release that allows you to play the full game with trophies. There's no limit set in the demo.

Sega had already pulled it from the store. But if you purchased it before hand you can still download it from your download list, which is what I did.

Now to turn off automatic updates lol.

It's not a glitch, they released the full game for free by mistake.  :lol: I'm still keeping my Premium Edition preorder though.

Still got my artbook edition on preorder as well to support the series. But now I can just play the digital version and keep my physical version sealed.

For anyone who's played the demo yet and got it to "unlock" , does your homescreen icon for the demo say "prologue" on it?

Mine does. I'm Wondering if it's a different download some received or did everyone get the full game.

Well, for whoever is going to Anime Ascension this year (Aksys' tourney for Arc System Works titles), BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle will be playable there!

 

I know I am, lol. (For those wondering, its in UC Irvine, California, and have been there since the first A.A.)
